Aynsley Lister is one of the UK’s hottest contemporary blues guitarists – many consider him to be among the best in the world. His unique brand of blues-based rock delivers contemporary songwriting fuelled with the kind of heart and soul that’s missing from so much modern music.

Peter Green, Albert King and Eric Clapton were the musical giants influencing the young ears of Aynsley Lister while he was growing up. Building on this foundation, Aynsley has crafted his own unique perspective on contemporary blues since he first formed a band aged 13 and released his self-titled debut in 1998 on Ruf Records.

It’s been a fantastic journey so far that has seen Aynsley play with, amongst others, Buddy Guy, John Mayall and Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as winning multiple awards including Guitarist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and ‘Song of the Year (for Home)’ at the British Blues Awards.

Aynsley is currently hard at work recording his newest studio album, Along For The Ride, set for release via his own label, Straight Talkin’ Records. The new album, the third to be released by his own label, is a bold, confident and accessible slice of contemporary blues-rock that promises to bring Aynsley yet more accolades as well as introduce his genre-blending sound to a new audience, building on the 100,000 albums he’s already sold worldwide.
